When I was a young girl, my mum would be mortified at the speed I went through each new book. I always fantasised about being a writer, but ended up being an engineer instead. I have always loved reading fiction, not your average chick-flick or top-of-the-charts popular culture, but anything that could take me to a different world. The book I enjoyed the most last year was 'Me Before You' from Jojo Moyes. However, I've recently stumbled upon a non-fiction book about North Korea, which blew me away. I always thought non-fiction would be too factual, and slightly dull, but here I am, completely proven wrong and wanting to explore a whole new world of non-fiction books.
I have just finished Nothing to Envy: Real Lives in North Korea, and I am now reading "Reading Like a Writer: A Guide for People Who Love Books and for Those Who Want to Write Them ".
Firstly, I'm someone who can't decide whether she likes books or brunches more. So, why not combine both loves? And secondly, I am really intrigued about the world of non-fiction books. Finally, and most importantly, I don't really have many friends who read as much as I do, and the idea of joining a book club formed of like minded people is really exciting!

I love books. I have been living in London for almost 8 years now, and enjoy every single moment of being here. Before London, I studied and lived in Turkey (where I am originally from). I work in sustainability and absolutely love it.
